I just bought one of these things and it's amazing. The tex-mex pickups are so perfect for that dirty blues sound. It is the best thing you could buy if you can't afford the 1600 for Stevie's.
I just got a mim strat maple neck hss and god does this thing sound great.For the most part.you made a good deal,on mine pick ups are going.lace sensor,and sh-1 .rock on ken
the only problem i had with a JLV Strat was the tuners, but that might have just been the one I was playing. I really enjoyed the sound, those tex mew's real do the blues sound good, but i'm still glad I went with my american strat. It was worth the extra 400.
